About Jarrod Kurtz
Natural speaking voice has a fair amount of bass and a southern midwestern twang. I can take that out(I think :-) and believe I can provide a wide variety of voice timber, type and quality for customers.
Projects that require southern accents or deep voices or a tough guy persona (think Clint Eastwood gravel) would come very natural but any project require a male voice at any age can be accommodated.
I have been in IT for a long time and technical jargon doesn't phase or intimidate me. In fact, were a client to need some consulting regarding tech I could provide that as well.
Ideally I wouldn't mind being the next movie trailer guy and a special goal for me is to get a VO gig on a cartoon or movie that my son would get to hear daddy on.
Though when young I did a fair amount of singing and vocals in stage performances, choirs, musicals etc, I am just now starting out in this business so get time and projects with me before my voice is widely known.
Provide male voices that are:
Funny, crazy, sincere, wise, cruel, dark, cold, tough, warm, genuine, masculine, sexy, romantic, seductive, passionate, wild, angry, intense, reserved, timid, adventurous, calm, soothing, caring, wise, considerate, empathetic, calming, reassuring, honest, believable, crisp, formal, common every man, whiskey soaked, raspy, intellectual, witty, vibrant, resounding, dramatic, etc...etc...
Can provide those and many many more tones and styles that lend authenticity to your character/roles cowboy, rock star, biker, villain, hero,
If chosen to do your project I will do anything and everything possible to make it an enjoyable, simple, quick process for you. We will get exactly what you want and will work together until we do.
I have been in consulting my whole life and it has taught me how to work with people from many different backgrounds and industries.
I am professional in all work I do but most importantly...I genuinely want to do this. I am genuinely excited about the idea so you can be assured of someone tackling your specific project with enthusiasm and dedication when you choose to work with me.
I do not yet have any paid voice over work but I am very excited to get started.
I do have a ton of experience in education and consulting so I have talked for a living before. I have been in technical communications for many years starting as a communications specialist in the Marine Corps and then moving into IT telephony and data communications. So, items like diction and dialect are concepts I am well aware of.
I did sing and perform vocals in many different venues in my youth including musicals, choirs, etc...
My voice is on the telephone system of a couple of my IT customers.
Be my first of many. I look forward to working with you!Read More
